Early start today to beat the crowds (and we mean crowds - a 1200-strong group of cruise ship passengers were due later this morning). Ashraf from Via Jordan Tours took us on a wonderful 2 hour plus tour of Petra. His knowledge and humour were infectious. With much hesitation on T's behalf we rode donkeys up the steep climb to The Monastery. What a fun and exciting experience! I want a donkey! They are so cute and sure-footed. Felt sorry for A's donkey having to pull his weight up those stairs. A 'G'day Mate' from the donkey guide completed our delightful journey to the amazing monastery and lookout over the mountains as hundreds of past generations of Nabatean did. Oh yes, and what an amazing birthday!
